Editorial Reviews

Review

AAA New York’s Car & Travel magazine, February 2009
“If you’re a car nut with an interest in Jaguar, you’d have to search far and near for a better compilation of the company’s history than this new book Jaguar: The Complete Story by Heiner Stertkamp. In this comprehensive coffee table book, you’ll learn how a small motorcycle-sidecar company grew to produce some of the most eye-catching cars in the world. Even Jaguar enthusiasts will pick up new information…”

Jaguar Heritage Archive, December 2008
“You may ask if there is room for another complete book on Jaguar? The answer is “yes” when it is as complete and as well-researched as this volume. There is so much material covered in this volume that the only way to benefit is to buy a copy! For what is contained within the cover price is quite modest. Originally published in German in 2006, this English edition is most welcome and recommended without hesitation.”

The Mountain Jaguar Club Newsletter (Tennessee)
“This is not merely a coffee table picture book of Jaguars but an exhaustive history of the company and a detailed account of the engineering behind each of the models. The detailed account of the history of the company and the people involved is what makes this book important to have for anyone seriously interested in the marque. This book is the most complete that I have seen in covering the history of the Jaguar Car Company.”

About the Author

Jaguar expert Heiner Stertkamp was born in 1959, the year of the Jaguar Mark 2. Like many young boys of his generation he was fascinated by the world of the automobile, particularly the sleek and powerful Jaguars. Years later, as he worked to acquire his own Jaguar, Stertkamp became a member of the Jaguar Association Germany, the country’s most prominent Jaguar club. Today he heads the XJ register and is a member of the JAG board. Stertkamp’s writing has been published in the UK’s Classic Cars as well as in German enthusiast magazines. His close relationship with the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust ensured complete access to Jaguar’s extensive archives. The book you hold in your hands represents Stertkamp’s years of painstaking research.

Great resource for all things Jag. Nice photography and history of this brand. The book will get as much attention on your coffee table as the car does in your driveway!
